Check your water inlet hose and any filters attached to it. Some hoses have a little turnkey tab to turn them off. Make sure this has not accidently gone into the shut off position. If you pull out the machine you will hear if the water is coming in through the inlet hose.

6yr old machine....last couple of days has completed wash/dry successfully and end illuminated however it then makes a whirring noise as though program is still operating even if door is open, the sound is...


If I am not mistaken, your dishwasher comes equipped with a water softener unit.
At some stage the regeneration cycle for the water softerner takes place. I am assuming the sound you hear is the solenoids of the regeneration system working.

If you are unsure you can refer to the user manual or this site for details. You will need to provide me the full model number in case you want further information.

The dishes just don't get clean. I know this isn't much to go on, but that's it.


Is the water hot? (make sure hot water is available to the machine at the start of the cycle by running the sink faucet until it is hot) Are you using the internal heater? (check the control panel for this feature) Are you using the entire cycle? (time) We are not talking about baked on food here are we? Dirty dishes that have dried?

Dishwashers cant remove baked on food no matter what the advertisement said. If the food is dried on, there is a better chance but ... dishwashers work best with freshly dirty dishes. If the food is dried, at least let them soak in the dishpan for a few minutes before you put them in.

How are you arranging the dishes, can the water reach all surfaces? (Think tempest in a teapot).

Have you tried other detergents? My preference is liquid though others may prefer granulated or tablet. I also like to use a product called Rinse-Aid.

If you have considered all these ideas and the dishes are still dirty ... there may be a mechanical fault with the machine. Is it making the proper noises?, Filling and emptying properly? (listen to it)

I hope you find these suggestions helpful ... Thanks for your visit today.

Dishes not coming out clean


Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Loud vibrating/humming noise


Okay...based on the model number, this is a Frigidaire manufactured dishwasher. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the your model number in the Search menu, you will find a useful illustration under the "Motor and Pump" heading. The drain pump is listed as item #60 in the drawing. Before you go through any major dis-assembly, check to make sure the pump is securely in place and not loose. Sometimes the pump comes loose from the mounting bracket and vibrates. Also, sure nothing is laying against it causing vibration noises (I've seen this before). If the solution is not that simple, remove the spray arm assembly inside the dishwasher and inspect all the debris traps under the spray arm assembly. The wash pump and drain pump sumps are located here. Check to make sure there's nothing obstructing the input to the drain pump. Lastly, if all else fails, remove the drain pump and inspect the impeller. If the you've inspected everything and still have the noise problem, replace the drain pump. The motor could possible be failing. The part number on the Sears website is 154580301 and costs about $40. Repairclinic.com has the same part listed as item #1257094 for $37.50 if you wish to do some comparable pricing.

I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know.

PS Even the quietest of all dishwashers will make some noise. However, if it has gotten to the point where you can hear it in the next room, you probably need to inspect to find the source of the problem. This is not true with all dishwasher manufacturers, but in many cases, the only difference between your "Quiet-Pack" line and regular low-end models is added insulation behind the door and lower panel to help quieten noise.

Dishwasher probs


It sounds like you have eithwer a low water problem (ie..Clogged inlet valve ) or your heater inside the unit is bad are they drying ok one other thing to do is run the hot water at the sink first to make sure the cold that is in the lines from the water heater is not filling in the unit try those things first
